Bangalore, Karnataka (PRWEB) September 25, 2011
Teleradiology Solutions (TRS) has signed teleradiology reporting contracts with 10 new sites (hospitals/diagnostic centres) in India this year. The centres are spread across the length and breadth of India, from Haryana in the North to Tamil Nadu in the south, including Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, UP, Bihar and Karnataka.
Teleradiology Solutions (http://www.telradsol.com) caters to 100 hospitals globally including centers in the USA and Singapore. Leveraging its 9-year expertise in delivering high quality radiology reports to these demanding markets, the organization is now focussed on expansion of its services to centers within India. The hallmarks of the service, which are set to international benchmarks, including strict timeline and quality commitments, a superior technology workflow platform (RADSpa) and high communication standards.
The organization offers free/subsidised reporting services to deserving centres depending on the need (remoteness, radiologist availability etc). Reporting for hospitals such as Ramakrishna Mission hospital in Itanagar in Arunchal Pradesh etc have been taken up through Telerad Foundation (http://www.teleradfoundation.org), the not-for-profit wing of the organization.
Teleradiology contributes to patient care by the quick reporting of radiologic studies (xrays, ultrasounds etc) in remote locations where there is a scarcity of radiology practitioners. This helps in early detection of the medical problem and also ensures appropriate treatment. Especially in trauma and emergency cases which require immediate treatment, teleradiology can be a boon for the patient and the consulting physician who is treating the patient.
CEO of Teleradiology Solutions, Dr Arjun Kalyanpur states, “Although we have been offering our services in India for quite some time now, it is only recently that we have begun to experience a dramatic increase in interest from centers within India. This is probably related to a combination of increased awareness about the benefits of teleradiology, greater broadband penetration and the growing impact of the nationwide radiologist shortage. We believe that teleradiology provides the solution to some of the burning healthcare issues that afflict India.”
